For those of the opinion that the Rams’ offense could use more pop, presenting West Virginia’s Tavon Austin.

At 5-8½, 174 pounds, Austin is a small package of dynamite as a slot receiver, occasional running back and return man.

“A lot of teams are looking for a type of player who can do multiple things on the field,” Austin said. “And I think I’m that guy.”

He has the numbers in college to back that up — and then some. Try 1,289 yards receiving, 643 yards rushing, 813 yards on kickoff returns and 165 yards on punt returns in 2012. He was one of only two players in major-college football this past season with 500-plus yards in three different statistical categories.

Among his 17 touchdowns, he scored at least one TD four ways for the Mountaineers last season: 12 receiving, three rushing, one on punt returns and one on kickoff returns.

For those concerned about his ability to hold up in the NFL week-in, week-out at his size, Austin confidently says: “It definitely shouldn’t be a problem. I haven’t gotten hurt or missed a game in eight years, so I think my durability should be pretty good.”

Besides, they’ll have to catch him to hit him to hurt him. Not only does Austin have quickness and escape-ability, he showed Sunday at the NFL scouting combine that he has coast-to-coast speed.

His “official” time in the 40-yard dash was a sizzling 4.34 seconds, which tied for second-fastest with Texas A&M’s Ryan Swope among wide receivers on hand. Only Texas wideout and U.S. Olympic team long jumper Marquise Goodwin ran a faster time Sunday, at 4.27.

Some combine stopwatches had Austin clocked as fast as 4.25 on Sunday, which qualifies as strapped-to-a-rocket speed.
